A New York State Supreme Court judge rejected all but one of Kesha’s counterclaims against producer Dr. Luke on Wednesday, including her allegation that he had committed a hate crime against her.
“Every rape is not a gender-motivated hate crime,” Judge Shirley Kornreich wrote.
Actress and well-known equality activist Patricia Arquette was quick to react, accusing the judge of mental health issues and expressing surprise that a female judge would come to such a decision.
Arquette wasn’t the only one to express her disapproval: Fans, well-known lawyers, writers and TV personalities also took to Twitter to show their support for Kesha:
Thursday morning, Kesha’s good friend Iggy Azalea posted a photo with the hashtag #FreeKesha. It shows the two artists riding horses together.
The only claim that remains concerns whether Kesha’s performance agreement with Dr. Luke’s company was terminated as a result of the decision to sue her for breach of contract, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
